Sustainable Land Use 2 – Carbon emissions

When fossil fuels (such as gas, coal or oil) are burned, carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere. In a natural carbon cycle, carbon dioxide is transferred back to plants and trees. However, fuels are being burned at such a rapid rate that the levels of carbon dioxide being produced cannot be soaked up by plants and trees that are alive now. The two primary sources of carbon emissions are from burning fossil fuels used for electricity generation and petroleum used for transport.


We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of the lands where we work as well as across the lands we travel through. We also acknowledge our Elders past, present and emerging.
